Summer Grass

About this design:

It's a double wrap chunky bracelet.
I fell in love with these Grass Green Turquoise beads the day they appeared in New Products.

I included the "first draft" that I quickly disassembled because it was too "basic." I wanted something chunky to go with these big and bright stones.


Grass Green Turquoise 12mm. Chunky gunmetal filigree beads and oversized clasp.

    Wow…first time I’ve run across your jewelry. You are awesome. I love the double wrap with the green turquoise. Why do you call it a double wrap? Is it not a 2 strand?
